This is not a paid entry.
I’m currently on the look out for a new computer system. Exceptionally wonderful laptop or Super Desktop + Netbook? Until I came across this on Dell (MYS) website.
This is too much. It made my squeaky-10-minutes-tops-laptop looked like child’s play. So 19 hours on a single charge? That.. that.. that is a CON, SCAM, FRAUD, PENIPU! (actually I’m envious).
three two options now,
Option 1: Super ‘gile-babi’ laptop. I could carry my work everywhere, including some intense graphic design and gaming activity. Bad, usually heavy, overpriced small screen, gets hot easily, if it dies on me, I’m dead. Either an XPS or Latitude, allocated 5k.
Option 2: Powerful desktop and a 10-inch Netbook. I can do more work on desktop and carry a slim Netbook for an hour presentation. The bad, synchronizing data. Cheapskate clone PC + MSI Wind or Lenovo S10 allocated 3.5k + 1.5k.
Option 3: Get a Macbook Pro. Other than cool factor, I have to consider software licensing issues. Cool factor, cool factor. Scrapped, hail Mike Arrington.
Not in consideration: HP & Compaq. I had 3 laptops from the same maker. It’s always the same case of overheating.
I guess it comes down to Option 2. Maximum output when at home and for mobility, I could carry my Netbook everywhere. Synchronization can be done using an 8gb USB and PortableApps.
